Door Lock Problems

My 2002 2WD 5 sp Rav4 has some locking issues and I am wondering if anyone has encountered this problem. The driver's side will only lock or unlock the driver's side door with the key, which is to say, the double turn of the key does not work either to lock or unlock all four doors. From the passenger side, you can unlock all four doors but it will only lock the passenger door, which is to say, the double turn of the key works fine for unlocking, but not for locking on the passenger side.

From the inside, all four doors will lock or unlock fine.

Does this suggest any specific differential diagnosis to anyone out there in the land of electrical troubleshooting.

Is it possible the two (driver's side failure and passenger side failure) are separate failures?

Any insights are appreciated.

That's weird that it works from the inside. That means the cable is fine. I guess you'll have to take it to a shop. Dont pay more than $80 for them to check it out and possible tighten a few things.

Back in anticipation of owning a '14 Rav4 after selling my '02 in 2007. Looking forward to being active again in the threads.
